"I had two amazing kite-surf-days with Ricardo! When I came to Portugal I could hardly do the body-drag and in only two days they brought me not only onto the board, I even managed to go in both directions on the last afternoon. Although during my holiday the wind at the algarve was not the best for kite-sufing, they found the spot, with the minimum of waves and the maximum of wind, so the conditions were really great (especially for a beginner like me). Every day Ricardo came to pick me up and we had a very nice trip to the location they had chosen for the day, during my lessons (we were only two people in one group) the atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. Ricardo helped me with everything until I managed to handle kite and board simultaneously on my own, watched each ride of us and afterwards had lots of useful tips for us, which helped me very much to do the right things in the right time. Up to now I have taken lessons from some different kite-surf-teachers and can really recommend Ricardo to everyone as the best."

"We had an excellent week's holiday with South Adventures and we enjoyed the flexibility of being able to learn two new water sports; Stand up paddle and Kite surfing. The Kite surfing tuition was great as we had one instructor for two people and we progressed well during the week. The location is excellent as the beaches nearby are great as the apartment we stayed in was only five minutes away. We would recommend South Adventures holidays for anyone that loves to be active and enjoyed being outside in the great weather! Thank you Ricardo for being great hosts and for being flexible with the day's activities."

"You can believe me, this was not our last kitetrip to Portugal, it was very very good!!!!!"
Helmut Auer & Nicole - Germany 
"I would not hesitate to recommend South Adventures to any kitesurfer or potential kitesurfer - whether complete beginner or experienced rider.
Ricardo and the team will take you to the best places where their local knowledge enables them to pick and choose the best spot depending on the conditions of the day.  Whether in a formal lesson or just with them to ride, they will make sure you understand the local rules of the spot - as well as a handy safety boat!
South Adventures have taught my children from scratch in a professional, safe and enjoyable method.  There are always plenty of smiles at the end of every day."

"South Adventures was recommended to us by Ritz hotel in Lisbon. Our kid Luka (10 year old) had 5 fantastic SUP sessions with Ricardo. He loved the classes and wants to come back for more next year:) Ricardo was an excellent instructor!"

"South Adventure was recommeded via the web site surf oase and so I got in contact with Ricardo. The lessons made my trip to Lissabon unforgettable. The best was not just the professional teaching but also the kind picking up and giving me tips for my time in lissabon.
At fist I wanted to take kite lessons but unfortunaly the wind wasn´t my best friend ;) so I could get to know SUP. It was a great experience and made so much fun.
Thank you Ricardo for the great time.
I wish you all the best."
